Mild to Moderate Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Can Erase What Takes a Lifetime to Learn

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of Dementia.  Almost every family in the Kelowna area has been touched by the disease. Families are torn apart trying to care for the Alzheimer patient and still maintain their own routines. The CMHA website describes what happens with Alzheimer’s.

“Alzheimer’s disease causes the structure of your brain to change. These changes affect the way your brain works. As a result, it affects the way you think, remember, act and feel. It also affects the way you communicate with others and the way you move your body.” The most common symptoms are:

  • difficulty in remembering recent events, known as short-term memory loss.
  • confusion, irritability, aggression, mood swings,  trouble with language, and long-term memory loss.
  • gradually, bodily functions are lost, ultimately leading to death.
